Abstract
Applied Minds, Inc. (AMI) seeks to investigate the application of a variety of techniques to enhance its current portfolio of technologies, based on previous research carried out at AMI and on work done for a variety of client organizations including the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL). AMI’s technologies in this area provide a number of features – linking people, projects, documents, and concepts together, enhancing collaboration within teams, providing tools for collaborative decision-making, and providing compelling user interfaces. This SBIR opportunity will allow AMI to enhance its existing technologies by incorporating textual analysis, trust and reputation systems, social network analysis, metadata and ontology tools, and advanced visualization techniques into our advanced information technology framework that is currently under development. We expect that this Phase I effort in conjunction with AMI's existing technologies will lead to a successful Phase II development project and a prototype solution for building ad-hoc teams of experts.
